For the last day in the Pav series I have a Keema Pav. This is a vegetarian version made with soy granules. I have never been fond of soya but my family loves it and whenever Keema Pav is made everyone raves about it. They coax me to eat but I have my mind blocks and do not eat any such things that remind me of non veg food. No offense, but like I told you it is a mind block. Keema Pav happens to be a hot selling item at parties and weddings. The keema is displayed on a very big gridle and the Pav is served separately .


I decided to make a sandwich with he same concept. I added some onion rings and fried green chillies to this to give a twist and perhaps more delicious.


My son who is a big fan of soya keema simple loved this take and asked me to make it more often. The onion gave the crunch and the fried chilly gave a terrific zing. Do try this version and let me know how you liked it.

  1. You know what, I never knew kheema pav is an item served at partied and sold as chaat item but sometimes we just fill kheema in hot dog buns and eat. As a matter of fact, I often sandwich leftover curries with left over bread. Even I am not a big fan of soya but prefer soya granules over chunks.

  2. cool recipe – always wanted hubby to taste keema pav, although we have tasted the vegetarian versions outside, never appreciated the overly buttered veg keema pavs….he has recently picked up on the soya granules…

  3. Wow I thought you have changed or I have landed at a wrong place when I saw Kheema pav. I love this and will try it on my two anmol ratan who will of course go gaga over Vaishali Aunty's cooking.
